A study on values, problems and potentials of the traditional dwellings in Karabağlar-Muğla

Timur, Barış Ali
Karabağlar district of Muğla, which was registered as a conservation site in 1977, is a low density traditional settlement which has had a family scale agricultural production background. Most of the families, living in the town center, used to migrate to their houses and their farms in that fertile district from the spring till the autumn in order to prepare their needs of foods for the winters as the production of family scale agriculture and animal husbandry. Today the district is located next to Muğla University campus in Kötekli district in the south and neighbors the axis relating university to the city center in the west. The land values in Karabağlar are very high because the area has always been a prestige zone for the citizens of Muğla because of its cultural and traditional background and the natural beauty. Unfortunately these characteristics lead either to rapid and unconscious restoration interventions or to the total abandoning of the traditional buildings to collapse in order to use the land in future. Therefore; Karabağlar is in danger of losing its traditional, urban, architectural and natural characteristics. This study seeks to fulfill the already made urban-scaled conservation studies with the architectural-scaled data. It aims to determine the values, problems and potentials of the traditional dwellings in Karabağlar-Muğla.


A Case Study on Identification of Traditional Timber Framed House: Konuralp
Bayazitoğlu, Ümit Ceren; Cengiz, Seda (THE ATHENS INSTITUTE FOR EDUCATION AND RESEARCH; 2016-07-05)
In Anatolian rural settlements, it can be observed that, local architectural components form the urban and the architectural identity of the district. One of these factors is the construction style of the buildings. In the paper, the structural systems of registered and nonregistered timber civil architecture examples, basically from the first half of the 20th century, that constructed in an area having potential in different perspectives will be analyzed. The field of study is Konuralp; a town of the city ...
A new approach to estimate cover-management factor of RUSLE and validation of RUSLE model in the watershed of Kartalkaya Dam
TANYAS, Hakan; Kolat, Çağıl; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi (2015-09-01)
RUSLE is one of the most widely used soil erosion model worldwide. However, some of the input parameters of RUSLE may require extensive field and laboratory studies, and therefore in most of the cases these parameters are estimated according to some alternative approaches. In this context, cover-management factor (C) has significant importance since it is the most influential factor due to its effect on result, besides; there are some doubts about the alternative approaches which are used to estimate the C ...
An Informed process for new building design in historic settlement: the case of İbrahimpaşa Village, Cappadocia-Turkey
Binoğul, Beril; Özgönül, Nimet; Conservation of Cultural Heritage in Department of Architecture (2019)
Historical settlements are heritage sites which are formed in time, in accordance with the landform, climate, local materials and traditional living styles which all together specify the original characteristics of that area. They should be able to change and develop according to the needs, while they also maintain the continuity of their original characteristics. In this concept, new buildings in historical settlements is a conservation problem and solutions should be provided to maintain the values of the...

Alpagut, Leyla (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2010)
"Gazi Forest Farm" established on 5 May 1925 was designed and developed as a modern site with concern for leisure activities along with agricultural, industrial, and commercial components. Following the first construction between 1925 and 1926, development in 1930s was conducted so as to show a planned environment with modern concerns in mind. The initial plan for the Farm dated 1934 was maintained by the Swiss architect Ernst Arnold Egli, who attempted to innovate an approach to connect the historical and ...
A Reference Genome Sequence for the European Silver Fir (Abies alba Mill.): A Community-Generated Genomic Resource
Mosca, Elena; et. al. (2019-07-09)
Silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) is a keystone conifer of European montane forest ecosystems that has experienced large fluctuations in population size during during the Quaternary and, more recently, due to land-use change. To forecast the species’ future distribution and survival, it is important to investigate the genetic basis of adaptation to environmental change, notably to extreme events. For this purpose, we here provide a first draft genome assembly and annotation of the silver fir genome, established...
